Trump sends political shockwave through United Kingdom with interview on Brexit, protests

TRUMP-QUEEN

Donald Trump has met Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle for a "social visit", during which the pair are expected to share a cup of tea.

In remarks that will likely further weaken May's already tenuous grip on her own government, Trump told The Sun, a British newspaper, in an interview published Friday (13 July) that her proposed "soft" post-Brexit relations with the European Union would scupper a USA trade deal.

But uncharacteristically for Mr Trump, he appeared more reserved and took her hand gently when she offered it, something the Queen is said to prefer for greetings. "I think he has done a bad job on crime, if you look, all of the disgusting things going on there, with all of the crime that is being brought in". I haven't been there in a long time.

The U.S. president and First Lady Melania Trump are in the United Kingdom for two days this week between the NATO Summit in Brussels yesterday and Trump's upcoming meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on the weekend.

He wrote on Twitter that although Londoners admire the US, they "find his policies and actions the polar opposite of our city's values of inclusion, diversity, and tolerance".

Moments later, though, French president Emmanuel Macron disputed Trump's claims, saying all 29 members had re-committed to the previous spending target of 2 percent of their GDP. "It's a very, very good thought". Any time the queen was on television, my mother wanted to watch it, " said Trump. Thousands more protesters had taken to London's Regent Street by Friday afternoon, carrying countless signs and banners that read "Together Against Trump", "Trump Not Welcome", "Dump Trump", "Resist Trump" and "Make Love Not Walls". He hates that London chose a Muslim mayor. "What is interesting is Trump is not criticising mayors of those cities, but he is criticising me", he told the BBC's Today programme. The interview posted online as Prime Minister May welcomed President Trump and the first lady at Blenheim Palace for a lavish gala dinner. Why, you ask? Because about 12 hours before this meeting, Trump blasted May for her handling of Brexit and said that he "told [her] how to do it but she didn't listen". "If they do that, then their trade deal with the USA will probably not be made", Trump said.
